Kevin Huerter Declares for NBA Draft, Won’t Hire Agent
Kevin Huerter has the perfect game for today's NBA. Long and rangy describes both his build and his game. Huerter can shoot it from anywhere, off a screen or off the dribble. He can defend four positions and maybe all five on the floor. Huerter rebounds and blocks shots.
After a sophomore season at Maryland that pushed Kevin Huerter further into the spotlight, the Shenendehowa grad is testing the NBA waters. On Friday, Huerter declared for the NBA Draft but he will not hire an agent, which allows him to return to the Terrapins next season if he wants.
The deadline for Huerter to make a decision on his future, whether he's in or out of the draft, is May 30. This allows the 6'7" swing forward to go through a series of evaluations and to get a good feel for his projected draft position.
When we spoke with ESPN's Kevin Pelton more than a month ago, he had Huerter as a top 20 pick. The former Section II star has clearly caught the attention of scouts and front office brass and so whether Huerter decides to keep his name in this summer's draft or not, the process and journey on which he is embarking will only help him and his stock, so why not go for it?
